County of Clatsop, OR

Clatsop County occupies the northwest corner of Oregon bounded to the north by the Columbia River and to the west by the Pacific Ocean. Named for the Clatsop Indians, Clatsop County is rich in history, scenery and opportunity.
Ocean beaches, secluded coves, dense rainforests, mountains, rivers and streams make the County and its rugged coastline a major recreation center. Broad sandy beaches offer beachcombing, clamming for a Northwest favorite, razor clams, fishing for salmon, steelhead and trout, camping, hiking and quiet escapes. State parks and waysides provide miles of hiking and bicycle trails, wildlife viewing, scenic viewpoints, picnic sites and campgrounds, and all this is within just a few hours drive to the great Cascade Range, where you will find some of the world’s premier skiing destinations.
The first Clatsop County government dates to the 1840s. Today Clatsop County is one of nine Home Rule counties in Oregon. Five non-partisan elected Commissioners set policy and appoint a full-time County Manager, who is responsible for daily operations. The Sheriff and District Attorney positions are also elected.
Clatsop County’s 2017-18  budget is $65,198,690, with a General Fund of $23,344,770. The workforce totals 213 FTE. A Long-Term Financial Plan provides guidance for maintaining the county’s financial health and accountability. It ensures that the county maintains adequate reserves, that fees cover costs for services and that new revenue sources are
explored.
